    I'm a dumbsh/t. I meant to pass this on earlier and remembered when I ran across this photo.

    I was trying to get the Paketa under 16lbs a year or two ago. I cut the post to save these 43g. Worked fine. I put the Thomson back on the Paketa and took the Enve post for the new bike. Too short.

    That was a tough one to explain to my wife. That's one of those things that makes you want to punch yourself in the face. Don't punch yourself in the face.

    Went to Nashbar to look at those pedals and noticed that they have a SS wheelset for 64 bucks. Spent the next hour looking for bits to convert the Schwinn to single speed.

    My Bianchi SS is awesome. It brings the simplicity back to cycling. The way it was when the losers rode 10 speeds.

    Oh no! I can't decide between red and black.

    All you probably need are those wheels, freewheel and possibly shorter chainring bolts.

    Picking cherries. Well, at least arranging, organising and supervising 40+ pickers to get the fruit from tree to packhouse.

    First day off in 12, and everyone has been around 13 hours' worth, and the two-hour return commute makes it a long day. But it has been worth it.

    The price for our export varieties just keeps climbing and climbing, and there is heaps of it still on the trees. That's great for the farm manager who has nursed the orchard through to this point, and is one of the best orchard operators I have worked under (well, the best).

    My biggest problem is having to sample the fruit for ripeness every morning. Going up and down rows across the orchard, tasting for taste and colour... oh well, someone has to do it!
    Dream. Dare. Do.

    I have a Singlator kit sitting in a box, doing nothing, with an 16T, & 18T cogs, and a 43T 110 BCD chainring sitting next to it.... No plans for any of it.

    There was a guy in the Fixed Gear forum that did this last year and everyone harassed him about it. It was quite comical.

    Oh yeah, that didn't register for some reason. See, you miss things before the coffee kicks in.

    43x16 is the ratio on my fixed gear. Gets me around pretty good.

    Although I know cutting the first post was dumb, I'll probably cut the second post to offset the weight of the chain guard. The Enve post is 400mm. I can't imagine it being a problem again.

    I did say that the last time.

    The cut post goes back on the Paketa with the matching 120mm stem. New post and 110mm stem on the new bike.

    This is how I justified cutting it last night.

    As long as you keep the appropriate posts with the selected bikes, you will be fine.

    I have switched to a Thomson 0 offset, so now I need to decide on either a Zipp 0 offset, or switch to a Thomson stem.

    Why don't you get that Zipp post from the other thread? It's shipping from Boulder, so probably some dude who's getting OEM pricing.

    I saw that, and it's on the radar. I do like the beyond black better than what I have, so it would have to be a set. Which is OK.
